Blue Jeans by APO Hiking Society

bluejeans2

One of my favourite groups, the APO Hiking Society and their song, “Blue Jeans” reminded me of our college days and the struggle we have endured just to earn the much-deserved degree.

I
(Blue jeans)
Alam mo ba ano ang ibig sabihin ng ating pagsisikap sa ‘skwela
(Blue jeans)
Ba’t ‘di na lang iwanan ang pag-aaral at sama-sama tayong magsaya

Ngunit ang kabataan daw ay kayaman
‘Wag daw basta’t itapon at papabayaan
Kaya magsikap tayo habang may panahon at
Mag-aral at mag-ipon tayo ng karunungan

II
(Blue jeans)
Sige, sige, sige kayod sa ‘skwela at balang araw makikita n’yo
(Blue jeans)
Pagkatapos ng iyong paghihirap, ‘di ka rin makakahanap ng trabaho

Sino ba silang nagmamarunong sa buhay
Huwag sana silang makialam sa ‘king buhay
Anong kinabukasan pagkatapos sa ‘skwela
Huwag nang isipin at baka mangamba ka pa

CHORUS
Kay tagal-tagal ko nang nag-aaral
Tignan mo, kupas na’ng aking maong, hoo
Kung akala mo ako ay natuto na
Hindi pa rin

O kay tagal-tagal ko nang nag-aaral
Tignan mo, kupas na’ng aking maong, hoo
Kung akala mo ako ay natuto na
Hindi pa rin (‘di pa rin, ‘di pa rin, ‘di pa rin)

I
( Blue jeans )
Do you know what the meaning of our efforts to school
( Blue jeans )
Why not just leave the study and together we have fun

But they said youth is wealth
Don’t just throw them anyway
So strive as we have time and
Study and let’s invest in wisdom

II
( Blue jeans )
Go ahead , go ahead , go ahead struggle in school and someday you’ll see
( Blue jeans )
After your suffering , you also cannot find work

Who are they to know all about life
Forbid them to say how I lead my life
What does the future offer after school
Never mind lest you worry

CHORUS
For years I was studying
You see, my faded jeans, hoo
If you think I have learned
Not yet

Or for years I was studying
You see, my faded jeans, hoo
If you think I have learned
Still ( ” still , still , still )

For: Song Lyric Sunday – Paradise by Coldplay by Helen Espinosa and Music Mondays #30 by Kat
